We have no idea how Biddy Early’s isn’t a Chipotle by now, but we’re really happy it’s not. It’s an old school pub that’s earned its charm through decades of day-drinking and attracts a wider range of people than you’re likely to find just about anywhere else in Downtown Boston. Grab a pint here before some developer comes along and tears out yet another small piece of Boston’s soul.
